FORWARD is the name of the planning process through which we are discerning the God desired future for our life together. The FORWARD planning process was initiated by Compass in the winter of 2017. The FORWARD planning team was recruited by Compass in the spring of 2017 and given the task of discerning God’s future for Birmingham First and Berkley First.
